The i3 is the budget model and is DUAL-CORE.

The i5 is QUAD-CORE (except for one model 2390T) and has Turbo-Boost but lacks Hyper-Threading. This is the main stream model.

The i7 is also QUAD-CORE, with Turbo-boost and Hyper-Threading, that last feature enables windows to effectively see an 8 core processor. The thing is not a lot of software programs are written to take advantage of these 8 threads at this time (except for professional enterprise, high performance software like video-editing, 3D-rendering and scientific applications), so most users won't even notice the difference.

In my opinion i5 is the best option at this time!

not true, the i5 and i7 are both available as quad and dual-cores.

For realtime audio/video editing a dualcore with a higher and constant cpu-frequency is probably a better choice than a slower Dual/quad-core with boost.
the dynamic accelaration of the cpu can lead to some serious trouble in a live situation.


please do not post info that´s false!

Hello,

I would go with the i7. To use Vfx you should have the best computer possible, as Vfx is quite demanding in graphique memory.
